Tequila Ocho Plata Puntas Distiller's Cut (750 ml)

About This Item

Ocho co-founder and master distiller is the legendary Carlos Camarena, a 5th generation agave farmer and 3rd generation tequilero. In fact, it was his great-grandfather who was credited with bringing blue agave to the Highlands of Jalisco, an incredible feat for tequileros in Mexico. Carlos’ trade by nature is agronomy, so he knows the land better than anyone. His passion for family, the land and agave has allowed him to flourish into one of the most respected tequila makers in the world.

The puntas, or “distiller’s cut,” of agave spirits have long been considered the most coveted part of the distillate and are traditionally set aside by the producer to be enjoyed with friends and family on special occasions. The Puntas were sometimes also made available to Ocho VIP distillery visitors in Arandas, Jalisco. Puntas is a cut from the very end of the heads and the very beginning of the heart, making it quite unique as well as special. Tequila Ocho Puntas comes off the still at roughly 128 proof, and is reduced to 101 proof using deep well-extracted water from nearby the Tequila Ocho distillery in Arandas, Jalisco, Mexico. It’s at this high proof that drinkers will discover the highest concentration of agave flavors, while still experiencing a spirit that is extremely enjoyable to sip and savor neat.
